We Are One of the Country’s First Environmentally Conscious Cemeteries
Adjacent to San Francisco Bay Area’s Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Fernwood Cemetery and Funeral Home is a unique place, where families, friends and their loved ones connect through cycles of nature, memory, and conservation. A National Wildlife Federation Habitat, the rolling hills of our grounds are a place where every tree, rock and bird become a living memorial. Our main building, which houses a landmark chapel and gathering room for remembrance and memorial services, is a state of the art architectural masterpiece.
We offer natural burial, green burial, traditional burial, cremation services, and America’s first green Jewish Cemetery, Gan Yarok. Our compassionate and experienced cemetery and funeral home staff can assist you in planning a memorial service or intimate remembrance for your loved one. Our vision is driven by a desire for simplicity and a deep commitment to the conservation and restoration of the natural environment. Our hope is to help you fill the emptiness of your loss by giving expression to the richness and beauty of a life that was like no other.
